Welcome to our school website which we hope you find interesting and informative. Our primary school is located in the scenic fishing village of Port Ellen on the southern tip of the Island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland. Children from the surrounding area are educated at Port Ellen from nursery to primary 7. Our school’s Gaelic Choir, Coisir Bun-Sgoil Port Ilein, has enjoyed success for many years at local and national Mods. We are an Eco-school and have achieved six green flags and children lead change in the school, local community and wider world through citizenship groups. As a school we are committed to achieving excellence for all, enabling all pupils to flourish in an environment that values every child. We aim to provide the best all round education possible in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere at the heart of our island community.
